Sycamore class do PE on Mondays and Fridays. Please make sure that your child has full PE kit in school - black shorts, plain white top and trainers or pumps. When the weather is cold, they may bring plain black tracksuit trousers and a sweatshirt to wear over the top of their PE kit. It is fine for your child to bring in their PE kit on a Monday and take it home on a Friday so that you always know they have it if they need it.
Our forest school sessions will be linked to what the children are learning in class. If we are going to be going into the forest, I will send a message to let you know when so that you can send your child in with their forest school kit - old, warm and waterproof clothes and wellies or old trainers. A plastic bag for dirty shoes is useful to make it easy for your child to take their clothes home.
It is expected that your child will read each night. Their learning journals come home each night and reading should be recorded in these. Listening to your child read each night will greatly improve their reading ability. Please make sure you sign the learning journal each week. Their learning journals are checked regularly and each time your child reads at home, they get a tick to go towards their reading rainbow and the prize of choosing a book to keep!
Spelling homework is set each week on a Monday and is due in on the Friday. Spelling tests take place on a Friday each week.
It is important that your child learns their times tables. They need to know all times tables facts up to 12 x 12. TT Rockstars is a great way to practise these.
To help with fluency in maths, your child has a Numbots login. It works best if you download the Numbots app onto a tablet or phone.
